It's probably just the placebo effect but I swear I'm staying on LTE a lot better after the update. The last few weeks at work I would look and see I was on 3G or even 1x a lot. An airplane mode toggle wow fix it for a while. Today it's never lost LTE.

This is very possible. iOS 8.4 brought along with it a disaster of carrier bundles. Hopefully this issue has been resolved ESPECIALLY since the new iPhone is releasing next week and the last thing Sprint should want is customers getting their iPhone 6s and being locked onto 3g or 1x, or a congested b25 or b26 when b41 is available. I haven't been out and about yet so I have no opinion on it yet.

From what I am experiencing in downtown Nashville, the new carrier bundle for Sprint (21.1) is doing a much better job in prioritization of which band it uses. Band 41 was the band of choice in the earlier bundle provided by Sprint.  My iPhone would have a death grip on 41 and not let go.  Even with toggling the airplane mode, the phone would eventually return on 41.  With all of the development that has happened in the area, 41 has been overloaded and very slow (< 1mb down/up) most times of the day.

 

Now with the new bundle, the phone will go to 41 but discover (I think) that the data speed is very slow and will switch to 26 and stay there.  Yesterday on 26, I did a Speedtest and saw 15 down and 6 up.  I hope this is the case.  It will make the experience for Sprint users more pleasant.

I've yet to see an increase in battery life, so far it has been the same which is already what I'd consider reasonable at 5 hours once I get down to 32%. I charged before bed for a change to try battery saving mode. Went to bed with it at 97% and woke up at 95% compared to probably about 92% if I had done that before. So that appears to help some. 

Probably my worst problem with iOS 8 was the keyboard lag, now that's fixed but I now get a lag when sending messages where the text doesn't smoothly transition from the typing box to the message bubble all the time now. 

 

Overall this has been the least buggy iOS upgrade I've had since iOS5. 6, 7, and 8 all had some kind of problem that required me to restore 2-3 times before it working right.

There are animation hiccups system wide for me. Not horrible, but they're present. I also have the text delay problem. I give it a week before Apple releases 9.0.1 to solve these issues.

Idk I have been experiencing good battery life or at least it feels like great battery life compared to when I had my 5c. Id only get like 5 hours of usage. Now I'm getting 6hrs 30 min to 7hrs 30 mins. Also today I used the power saver option when it go down to 20% unlike yesterday.

Another idiot with the golden goose who let his emotions restrict his cash flow. The same thing happened with the flappy bird creator. Let me code a number one app that brings in thousands upon thousands of dollars. I promise I won't have emotions.

 

Edit: or, some huge advertisers cut him a massive check to pull it so they can continue business as usual.

I think what happened is that his tech press friends (John Gruber, et Al.) got pissed that he was making $3 off their loss of revenue. Most of these tech blogs run ads from The Deck, which was rightfully blocked, so they saber-ratted.

I've dumped the Facebook app from my phone for now. Two days in a row, I've woken up to a loss of 15% battery because of that app. It was always running, and had 11 hours of background activity since I last charged up. That's quite terrible.

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:   
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
